Arthur Turner, David Clithero and staff and volunteers from Pearey House Centre for the Visually Impaired and Sainsbury's Local Tynemouth prepare for a fundraising tree-top challenge.

A tree-top high-rope course is a challenge in itself, but imagine doing it when you can’t see.

That’s just what Arthur Turner, who is blind, and David Clithero, who is severely sight impaired, did – including zip wires, rope bridges and a freefall – to raise funds for Pearey House Centre for Visually Impaired in North Shields.

Staff from the centre and Sainsbury’s Local Tynemouth also took part.
